Love Letter - Teddy Bea

Good afternoon all you wonderful people what a glorious day we have had here I sure hope its been as nice where you are. Normally when the kids break up for their easter hols they get poop weather but we are on the 2nd day & so far so good. We weren't quite sure this morning what was in store cus we had a lot of sea mist but once it cleared the sun popped up to say......helloooooooo!!! Good enough for bbq but I got chicken fillets out this morn & put the slow cooker on this afternoon.......Country French chicken with taglitelle....mmmm....bbq another me thinks!!
Right anyway I'm drooling now so I'm gonna get on. I have another Teddy Bea card for you I do so love these bears I must do I've done 2 in 1 week lol.
This is called 'Love Letter' & is of course from the Teddy Bea range at Teddy

The card is made for 2 challenges Mojo Monday & Teddy Bo.

Papers are K&Co from my stash I think its the classic pad. Everything except the image & the flower is from my stash. The flower is from Crafty Emma's Store.

Teddy Bea is coloured with copics this time. I love the effect you get with Prisma's when doing bears as I just couldn't find the browns I wanted in PM's or copics so today I decided to make my own up. Thats the fab thing about copics you can get refills which of course you can then use to mix & form your own colours. You can even buy the blank pens to then transfer your ink to, which does make these the best buy in the long run......its just the initial layout thats pricey. So I've had my test tubes & pipettes out & mixed & got the ink colour I is very happy. Altho I will still use my prisma's as well of course.

Well thats bout it peeps but I'm hoping to be back later with another new image, a stamped image this time. I'm off to finish cooking the tea now apparently my son feels like his throat has been cut & he is dying lol.

Thank you soooo much for all your comments you leave for me I really do appreciate them. Also welcome to my 2 new followers I'm so sorry I did mean to welcome you yesterday. Thank you so much for coming along & I hope you like what you see in my ickle crafting world.
See ya all soonies mmwah xoxoxoxo
Challenges I'm Entering....... - Fabulous Sketch (hope its ok where the tag is, if not just delete my entry) - Tag It (there is a fabric tag/label thing & a small tag with the sentiment on, hope it counts.)
